    Additional Information

    "controlled, accomplished demeanour... she sings with what sounds like real conviction, a refreshing change from the mannered, contrived histrionics that currently dominate the popular music scene and sometimes infect jazz and blues too... there are times when she recalls Eva Cassidy and even - incontinent praise indeed - Sheila Jordan."

    Barry Witherden, JazzReview - May 2002

    "power and conviction... this Lady sure means business!"

    Jill Goldman, Singers' Night Newsletter - Oct 2002

    "Pure vocals... lovely voice... Look out for their next appearance! I'll certainly be there."

    Rob Vernon, The Bedford Bands Website - June 2003
